BILLED AS an “exclusive” from Mike Allen, his piece doesn’t report anything that hasn’t already been written, expect that Hillary Rodham Clinton has signed with a big agent, who is also representing her husband. That Mrs. Clinton is joining the Harry Walker Agency isn’t really news once you look at their roster. The former secretary of state is now on the front page of the agency website.
It is fitting, however, that Mike Allen report this development, because he is one of the hardest working people in politics.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will hit the paid speaking circuit this spring (likely April or May) and has selected the Harry Walker Agency, which represents President Clinton, as her agent. – Mike Allen
It is not news that Mrs. Clinton will get a 6-figure fee, which Allen reports by writing “industry officials expect that she will be one of the highest paid speakers in the history of the circuit.”
Considering non-profit work, as well as mulling foundation work of her own or joining the Clinton Foundation is an obvious thing to consider, as is the book she simply must write.
However, the video Allen serves up is hilarious, considering what Hillary will face if she decides to run in 2016. Republican awe will turn to shock and destroy pretty quickly if she does announce another run for the presidency.
